Double Layer Circle Skirt

Double Layer Circle Skirt

It snowed! I cannot tell you how excited I was to finally see the fluffy white flakes peppering the sky. There have been chances of snow popping up here and there the past few weeks, so I wasn't quite sure that it was going to actually happen this time around. But it did, and my husband and I had the loveliest weekend just staying inside drinking tea, and hot chocolate, watching movies and keeping warm and cozy. I got so much knitting done, and even squeezed in a bit of sewing. But I have something lovely to show you other than snow. This is a circle skirt that has been in the works for a bit.

One Week One Pattern: Days 1 & 2

So, have you heard of the One Week One Pattern challenge? It started this past Saturday. You can find all the details over on Hannah's blog: Cinderellis. A brief summary of the challenge: Take one pattern of which you have made several variations, wear the different variations for a week straight, and style them differently every day. I'm so glad Hannah decided to run the challenge this year! I participated a couple of years ago when Handmade Jane hosted it. It was one of the first "competitions" I took part in, and it was such good fun. It's nice to know which patterns can stand the test of being worn for seven days in a row. Here are my outfits for the first two days. I decided to use the Sweetheart T-shirt from Gertie's second book, Gertie Sews Vintage Casual.
